Press conference at 4:30, not that it takes much to be different from Jim Leyland, but he is a 360 degree change from him. From what I have read he appears to be a stats/numbers kind of manager
Isnt 360 degrees right back where you started? Just sayin...

I like this choice.

Other thoughts:
No problem with the Fielder trade.Kinsler brings speed and more hustle to the top of the lineup.
Jackson and Porcello are huge trade candidate.
Scherzer may also be gone. I just can't see a $100M plus deal for him. He just had a career season. I don't see him duplicating this. Long term contracts on pitchers are huge gambles.
Bullpen help is priority #1.

Welcome back Paul !

To comment on your observations ...

Fielder/ Kinsler, both players Hustle, that was never the problem with Prince imo.

Jackson and Porcello trades, possible .... IF Jackson goes, it better be for someone that can cover the spacious CF in Comerica. Ellsbury has been mentioned, also Choo ... do we want either of them, I think the Red Sox fans are happy to get rid of Ellsbury, don't remember why, other than money.

If they don't get one of those two, I would keep Jackson, defensively, he's GREAT.

Scherzer, I think they DO sign him, not to Verlander money though, they have the option to extend him, he's here next year regardless. (unless traded).

Still need Bullpen help.
